League Cup first as Carabao Cup draw to be shown live on Twitter

The Carabao Cup organisers have announced that the draw for the fifth round will be nothing short of revolutionary.

For the first time ever, the draw for the last eight of a major English tournament will be streamed live to a global audience on Twitter. How exciting.

"The Football League prides itself on being innovative and not being afraid to try something new if we believe it has the potential to increase exposure and awareness of our competitions at home and abroad," said EFL chief executive Shaun Harvey.

"It's the first time a major cup draw in the UK has been broadcast exclusively live by the social media network and presents us with a rare opportunity to engage with a global fan base alongside being able to continue the debate immediately after the ties are determined."

As if that wasn't enough, the draw will be conducted by Phil Tufnell and Matt Dawson.

Just to recap, that's the quarterfinal draw for a football tournament being conducted by a former England cricketer and a former England rugby player.

Chris covers the funny side of the game for ESPN FC in the Toe Poke blog.
